Introduction to the StatMod Package
This package includes a variety of functions for numerical analysis and statistical modelling. The functions are briefly summarized by type of application below.
Generalized Linear Models
tweedie defines a large class of generalized linear model families with power variance functions.
It used in conjunction with the glm function, and widens the class of families that can be fitted.
qresiduals implements randomized quantile residuals for generalized linear models.
are used to fit double-generalized models, in which a link-linear model is fitted to the dispersion as well as to the mean.
Spefically they are used to fit the dispersion submodel associated with a gamma glm.
are functions to test for differences between growth curves with repeated measurements on subjects.
Limiting Dilution Analysis
limdil function is used in the analysis of stem cell frequencies.
It implements limiting dilution analysis using complemenary log-log binomial generalized linear model regression, with some improvements on previous programs.
provide probability calculations for the inverse Gaussian distribution.
gauss.quad.prob compute Gaussian Quadrature with probability distributions.
hommel.test performs Hommel's multiple comparison tests.
power.fisher.test computes the power of Fisher's Exact Test for comparing proportions.
sage.test is a fast approximation to Fisher's exact test for each tag for comparing two Serial Analysis of Gene Expression (SAGE) libraries.
permp computes p-values for permutation tests when the permutations are randomly drawn.
